I. y>0

II. (x/y)>-1

III. (1/x) + (1/y) < 0

I only I and II only I and III only II and III only I , II and III.

X is -ve

-1< x/y< 0 therfore x/y is -ve fraction

x is -ve thus y is +ve

the three are valid must

III. (1/x) + (1/y) < 0


From the stem if (x/y)+1 is between 0 and 1 then it is a fraction between 0 and 1.

Since x<0 then y>0 so that the (x/y)+1 is a value between 0 and 1.

So 1) and 2 are true

(1/x) + (1/y) < 0 means x+y <0 which is also correct

So E is the answer
